Manukau Harbour and Waiuku River Cruises
Corporate & Private Charters Available

The Ratahi is available for tourists, weddings & celebrations, club trips and senior citizens.

For over eight decades the little ship Ratahi worked carrying a wide variety of cargoes mainly in the Bay of Plenty and to islands within the bay.

In 2019 she was restored to pristine condition ready for her new role taking passengers on cruises around the historic Manukau Harbour.
